Matt Clark
PIANO PAT: MONTANA LEGEND
TRT: 5:04
Piano Pat is one of those living legends. She’s been playing the same venue, the Sip ‘N Dip Lounge, in Great Falls, Montana since 1963. You don’t see a character like this everyday. And she’s still going!

Sean Kai Raffety
HA!
TRT: 1:07
Cj woke up. He put on his pirate hat, and took out his gleaming sword. He picked up the receiver and made the call, he had a message to deliver to Kai, and boy would Kai hear it!

Coral Aiken
Fabric
TRT: 9:32
Fabric is an experimental narrative about a woman’s attempts to reconnect with her family. The film uses magical realism to visualize a physical process of grief, exploring both real and imagined spaces.

SJ Chiro
Perfect Human
TRT: 4:11
The impulse to make this film came soon after I saw The Five Obstructions, six or so years ago. Even at that time I knew the role of “the perfect humans” would be played by my children. Look at them now. Look at them all the time. Parents cannot help but stare at their children. From the moment they are born, we spend hours looking into the tiny faces of these creatures that have emerged from our bodies. They seem like aliens. Who are they? Why are they here? What can they do? What are they thinking? How do they change? What are they doing now? And now? And now?

Clyde Peterson
Harsh Tokes & Bong Jokes
Music by Your Heart Breaks
TRT: 3:46
In the spare, messy style of Your Heart Breaks, "Harsh Tokes and Bong Jokes" is a nostalgic chronicle of the twins of youth: romance and rebellion. With the perspective that years bring, songwriter Clyde Petersen weaves melodies out of teenage trouble and innocence, songs in which we can all recognize ourselves. Imagine yourself getting high on a playground merry-go-round, having snuck out the first floor window of your ranch house in your neighborhood with no sidewalks because it was built during a time when people believed no one would ever walk anywhere again. Imagine enjoying it.

Danielle Morgan
Magic Pants
TRT: 8:15
Tired of working at the Magic Pants Incorporated pants factory where every day is the same, Erin dreams of changing her situation. Her co-worker Krissa dreams of gold pants.

Lucid, Inc
Roper
TRT: 6:00
This is the true story of Kendrick, a young calf roper we met in Louisiana who dreams of one day making it to the Las Vegas rodeo finals.
